- hopton woods xc
hard ground in most places in Ludlow just 7 miles away. worth a trip.
rode the Blue at FoD last weekend and liked it more than the red at Hopton. more flow, as we say.
no facilities at Hopton at all, not really much close except at Leintwardine or Craven Arms. take your own.Posted 5 years ago
Id add a loop of eastridge in on the same day, only 20 minutes up the road, but much better imo.
Ill too add that conditions are frozen right now, just back from my local trails in ludlow (5 miles away), its the driest its been since summer, but v frozen ground. Almost perfect 😉Posted 5 years ago
Both about the same distance, eastridge slightly shorter if i recall, but more technical, so takes longer to do. Hopton is not technical at all, but very flowey, rides really nicely, eastridge is older and more rough and rooty, much steeper, but very very good.
All I can say is when I have a day off work and stay local I try to do both, rather than 2 or 3 laps of one. They are quite different experiences. Whatever you choose, it will be good, enjoy 🙂Posted 5 years agotomsticklandMember
